Christmas is an eventful time of year in Basel. As well as the established highlights, there are also many smaller, extraordinary events.


Discover the events on offer in the city of Basel during Advent, for example at Theater Basel, which opens a new door on its literary-musical Advent calendar every day. The Toy Worlds Museum Basel and Basel Salvation Army both present Christmas exhibitions, and the Basel Puppet Theatre's programme will again include special Christmas performances for adults and children.

This year's Basler Stadtlauf (city run) takes place on 24 November, and Basel's churches are also planning numerous events during Advent. The many Christmas highlights will again include the Christmas variety show, Palazzo Colombino, at Rosentalanlage and the Christmas fayre at St. Claraspital.
